I am currently sitting in a hospital room in ICU with my husband, who suffered a heart attack yesterday afternoon. He is scheduled to be moved to the Cardiac Center in Norfolk on Friday for surgery - possibly stents or bypass. We will know more today, but I am doubtful that I will get to reading everyone's blogs and commenting. I just wanted you to know what was going on. I will post and visit as I can. I am not exactly thinking clearly at this point! Thinking only good thoughts...we were already at the hospital when he went into arrest - had been complaining of chest pains. There were many angels attending yesterday, from the police officer who assisted me and called the ambulance, to the doctors and nurses who were here when he arrested and were able to bring him back so quickly. My sons rushed to be here with me, my mother and sister offered to come if I wanted them, and so many people have made offers to help, I am totally overwhelmed. At times like these, you realize what is important - tell those you love how you feel, while you can. 30 minutes longer at home while he was not telling me about the pain in his chest and arm, and the result would have been a lot different today. As it is, I still have a husband and partner, and I am grateful to God,the angels I was surrounded with yesterday, my family, and the prayer warriors in many states.
Until the next time...Linda
PS: For those who follow both of my blogs, I am posting the same thing over at Taking Time and a Walk.
